We had a lovely stay here. It is in a great location. There was lots to do in Wells and it was quite busy but the cottage is in a quiet area. The kitchen was very well equipped and we were able to cook family meals easily. The cottage was lovely and cool when returning from a day in the sun. I would happily stay here again.

Well located cottage with the benefit of parking Comfortable sitting room and beds BUT: BOY, IS IT GRUBBY!! Bathroom needs a refresh, too much black grouting and a vinyl floor that is well past its use by date. Kitchen surfaces and cupboards have an unpleasant residual tackiness that suggests that a steam clean is required. I doubt that Holiday CotRead moretages have ever inspected the property and just take the booking fees. Which is disappointing. Hide

The property had not had a thorough clean and the courtyard garden could use a tidy up, location good and peaceful. We vacuumed before we left the property and swept the hearth, cleaned kitchen and bathroom sink. I hope the new visitors found it in a better condition than we did.

Location brilliant but bedroom windows grubby, spoiling ambience. The tiredness of the bathroom led to a leak from sink water waste pipes, resulting in water running across the kitchen ceiling, creating a large puddle on the kitchen floor which we had to clean up. Also afraid to use kitchen lights until fixed. Tradesman had to break into boixng-in Read moreto get to pipes which left us with wood and broken tiles mess in bathroom for rest of week. As it stands I could not recommend cottage to others. Hide

The most northerly county in the East of England, Norfolk is a land of beautiful contrasts. From the swooning reed beds and endless maze of waterways in the Norfolk Broads; the unspoilt stretches of fens and shingle spits where bird and wildlife thrive; a famous royal palace and the historic cathedral city of Norwich, this enticing area of England is just waiting to be discovered. Visit Sandringham Palace and see where the Queen lives or find out where lavender grows; you could journey to one of the largest seal haul outs in Europe at Blakeney Point or have a traditional day at the seaside at Cromer and Great Yarmouth. The cathedral gilded city of Norwich is a wonderful place to lose yourself either walking the ramparts of Norwich Castle or the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum. The city has an exceptional array of shops, cafes and restaurants to enjoy. Well connected to the national rail and road network, Norfolk is easily accessible from London, the M25 and from major city terminals.

Norfolk is characterised by its horizons and big skies, straight highways and rural trappings. Also, when it comes to attractions, visitors to the county will be spoilt for choice. If you love animals and birds, head to RSPB Titchwell Marsh, or the Cley-Next-The-Sea. With such a long coastline Norfolk boasts some magnificent stretches of beach – favourites include Cromer, Old Hunstanton, Wells-Next-The Sea, the dunes of Winterton-on-Sea, and Brancaster (a favourite for dog owners).

There are so many places to visit and activities to get involved in on a Norfolk holiday. We have some lovely properties including country cottages, farm conversions, large family houses, apartments and surburban home from homes in our collection. Why not find your perfect holiday home today?
